this is made with just the usual spool knitter technique from the olden days but with deluxe fat chenille yarn.

I got a newfangled kind of tool though for my son when he was 4 at micheal's craft store
it is a little tube with the pegs on top but the pegs are on a turntable you guide with your thumb to make the whole thing more fun... also there is a thread guide and a crochet hook that you can attach to the whole operation.
I'll try to upload a pic in the next few days , I kept the packaging and everything
( I'm so weird that way, I save everything in its original box...)

ETA:
WAIT !
I don't have to upload!
here is the link to the actual product:

great for in the car... I just start the ball from inside the center and put the whole ball in a 8x8 zipbag with just enough room for the tail to come out.
and the whole thing goes in the bag when not in use!
I use SU! dimensionals and got the colored google eyes at de Serra craft store at West Edmonton Mall.

good luck and happy knitting!
